Chastity belt for dogs

I have no idea what to make of this. Is it safe, sane, or consensual? Somehow I doubt it.

(Feb. 8) – A dog breeder from Louisiana is going back to medieval times to stop the modern-day problem of runaway pet overpopulation. He’s invented a strap-on canine chastity belt.

“I’m all for neutering and spaying,” says Dexter Blanch. “But in some cases, it is a health risk for the dog. In other cases, the pet owner is squeamish about putting the dog through surgery. And then there are people who plan one day to breed their pet.”

Chastity Belt for Dogs

PABS for Pets
A Louisiana dog breeder believes that PABS — a modern-day chastity belt for dogs — will help control pet overpopulation.

That’s why Blanch, 51, introduced the Pet Anti Breeding System – or PABS, as he calls it – a polypropylene belt with an eight-buckle locking system and a washable mesh pad for female dogs.

The device allows the pooch to do all its natural bodily functions, except one, of course.

The PABS slogan: “When the heat is on, lock it, and stop it.”

“The dogs can urinate and defecate,” Blanch says. “But they can’t copulate or impregnate.”

Amorous canines won’t get hurt trying to penetrate the PABS sheathing, Blanch claims.

It remains to be seen how pet owners will embrace this device, as it has been on the market for less than two months. Experts preach caution.

“For the majority of animals, spaying and neutering remains the most beneficial option,” says Dr. Kathleen Makolinski, director of veterinary outreach at the ASPCA.

Still, several animal breeders and a veterinarian offer testimonials on the PABS for Pets Web site.

The chastity belt does have one obvious downside, at least for the squeamish. The reusable pad needs to be cleaned.

While a female dog is in heat – a period of 21 days for many breeds – a pet owner would be required to rinse out the mesh area. Blanch figures that’s no different than picking up after your animal companion.

“I love my dogs,” Blanch says. “But when they’re in heat, you can’t keep them inside because it’s messy. And you can’t keep them outside, because when they get in that way they’ll chew through any fence to get out.”

Ironically, a freak injury led Blanch to his invention. He was shot by one of his beagles two years ago in a hunting accident, leaving him with an 8-inch wound.

“I nearly had to face the amputation of an arm,” he says.

In no way did the shooting sour his feelings for his dogs, he says.

“I had a lot of time when I was recuperating to think of a product to help pets and pet owners. I think it’s just a shame that millions of dogs have to be destroyed every year, because of overpopulation.”

Presently, the product is just for dogs. But Blanch says he was contacted by a man in Turkey who wants to know if he can develop a chastity belt for camels.

Such plans, however, are not in the works … at least at the moment.

What’s that? Why, yes,  of course there’s a video.

You know, I really just can’t think of anything else to add. Just… just no.

    I don’t understand why this is funny; certainly spaying & neutering is the best solution to unwanted breeding, but this device is certainly better than doing nothing. It seems odd that we can discuss our own genitalia like enlightened 21st century individuals, but when someone has an idea that can contribute to dealing with such a serious problem, we repress ourselves back to Victorian times. It’s not like we’re talking about chastity and orgasm control for dogs because they like it.

    Am I the only one who finds it telling that he came up with the idea for this after one of his dogs shot him?

    EIGHT buckles? sounds sexy

  4. Fusion says:

    I was thinking the same thing as Jz.
    I say just get the pet fixed and be done with it.

    • Tom Allen says:

      I imagine that not everybody wants their dogs “fixed” right away. Some people might want to have puppies, but at a more convenient time. If the alternative is to keep them locked in the garage, maybe this isn’t so bad.

      No, who am I kidding? It looks crazy, doesn’t it?

  5. Elle says:

    Like you, Tom, I just don’t know what to say. I’m stuck on his hunting accident story. The dog shot him? O_o

    Shit, I love that someone wants to make a device for camels. I mean, those bastards are mean!
